A truncated rhombic triacontahedron. I feel like I made it too colorful; Six colors (instead of the 30 here) would've worked just as well, if not better. Anyway, the name implies that there's order to the colors chosen, and it's true: The pentagons are surrounded by their complementary color, or as close to it as I could get (red pentagon surrounded by green units, blue pentagon surrounded by orange units, etc).
I am submiting an older picture because I have a small origami depression because my last "project" mode of 72 pieces has a little problem with construction and it is not so easy as I thought... Well, I will fold something at the weekend I promise
I guess this photo shoot became less about the origami and more about the real turtle we found on a gravel road in a park. It's not a domesticated turtle, so it was a bit weary of our presence at first and spent several minutes hidden in it's shell before coming out to play.
After taking some pictures, I relocated it a bit into the trees, closer to the lake and further away from the road we found it in. Hopefully it was happy we didn't take too much of it's time and helped it off the road.
As far as it's paper friend goes, it's a model by John Szinger, wet folded from a square of scrapbook paper. 12 by 12 inches.
A bullfrog designed by Roman Diaz and folded by me from an uncut square of wrapping paper 23 cm. I put a small crown (designed by Francisco Caboblanco) on his head to make a Frog Prince... anybody want to kiss him?
i like origami sooooo much! =3 these origami stars are made by myself. i made them out of curling ribbon, because it shines so nice. ^^ and i didn't had to cut paper to stripes. it was already 5mm wide. ^^
